A young Australind woman was also attacked by a stray dog and there were similar reports in Harvey and Yarloop.

There were concerns about the safety of the railway crossing at the southern end of Harvey.

The closure restricted access to two properties via a railway crossing onto the road.

The cause was reportedly the introduction of high-speed trains.
